Hello YouTubers!

Today I'm showing you guys how to get Serana to follow you incase she's 'bugging out'. As Serana is one of the most complex companions in Skyrim, there's a big chance that she might 'bug out', and I've seen many people on the internet looking for a solution that works on both PC, Xbox 360 and PS3. While I've only tested this on the Xbox 360, it should work on PC and PS3 as well, as the coding, forcing her to spawn and follow you, is the same no matter what system you're playing Skyrim on.
This method should also be able to fix the dialogue if you can't dismiss her, though I haven't tried it myself.

Here are the steps:
1. Travel to Castle Volkihar.
2. Go left until you reach the door to Castle Volkihar Undercroft.
2.5 !!!NOTE!!! If the skeletons don't spawn outside, this most likely won't work! Wait 10 days and they should spawn and it should work (thanks to natetheguitarkid for letting me know).
3. Enter the door and wait. If she doesn't spawn immidiately, try waiting 24 hours at the door.
4. Serana spawns in, following you. You can now access all the dialogue with her.

I hope you find it useful - if you do be sure to drop a like. Also for more be sure to subscribe and if you have any questions drop 'em below in the comment section :).

    Dude, this works on PS4. Thanks man, Serana is my favorite follower. Also is this a permanent fix, or will she get bugged again if you leave her?

  • alex Gonzalez

    I want her to stop being my follower but its glitched and I can't even talk to her

  • Ruth Queen

    Thanks dude this totally worked I almost can’t believe it xD. Mines kind of a funny story why I parted ways in the first place with Serana.So basically I was messing around in her dads castle and shut myself in a cage and serana stared right at me. So then she decided to open the cage door and walk in to and I got stuck because she was in the way of the cage door so I told her we had to part ways and ever since then she wouldn’t talk to me anymore like I couldn’t even speak to her or ask anything. I thought she was mad at me or something xD and it’s been a few days irl and I still couldn’t figure out why she wouldn’t follow me until I decided to search this video up so thanks a lot dude 👍

  • those2vgplayers

    The problem I have is I meet her in dimhollow crypt and ask her to follow me but she never moves I have made multiple saves on different characters but she won't do anything. Help plz

  • The_UnwantedReaper

    Didn't work for me some advice if you can't make her wait because she's already waiting and dismiss her she can never come back because she'll already be at the castle. I found no fix.

  • dIlUt3dFaItH tyndall

    Hey jitter in mine she will become my companion but she stays at fort dawngaurd but when I go there she won't follow me but she has the equipment that I gave her on and I have the option to trade with her but she just won't follow me

  • Rebecca Leader

    This didn't work for me, is there anything else that might help meThank you x

  • Razil DaKat

    The secret door at that castle for me won't allow me in- I defeated the skeletons and searched all around but it's telling me I need a key to get in- anyone can offer a little help? ( I couldn't figure it out so I've been ignoring that mark /place upon the game).

  • Ana Beatriz Vasconcelos Cavalcante


  • Jon R.

    Didn't work for me, but thx for the video anyway

  • Beer Nation

    I hope this works for me im on the touching sky quest and she just disappeared she's some where around though I was fighting a enemy and her ice blast attacked them

  • sampan chung

    Is dragonbone heavy armor? If so how did you you give her heavy armor at player lvl90. I'm only 35 and daedric armor is not equipping on her.

  • Brayan Gonzalez

    3 years later and it's still useful. Thank you my dude!!!!

  • DuffinThe Muffin

    that's not the problem I'm having at the moment, I don't have the option to get her to turn me back into a vampire, I'm sided with the dawn guard so I'd if that has anything to do with it.

    I wish I would've found this video before I went back 30-40 saves from being a level 60!! Now I'm only a level 35...but thanks!!!!

  • the biggest big Mac ever

    It's bullshit that Bethesda didn't patch this glitch in the special edition. Hell I don't think they fixed the majority of annoying glitches. I think they're too busy trying to get people to buy Skyrim again and again.

  • Time Flash

    There is something else wrong now serana won't follow me because when I told her to wait right here now I can't get her to follow me I don't have the word. do u know how to fix that as well?

  • Emma P

    This worked! Thanks so much!

  • Zak Martin

    I lost her when I got out of the cave

  • Leah Carter

    I thought it was pronounced serANa

  • Fantasy Connect

    She went to Solstheim for me...

  • Ballymeister

    Such a legend thank you sooo much

  • The.Inferno

    so I tried it out and after waiting 24 hours in the game nothing happened , I tried waiting again and still nothing . I start to worry and think maybe this didnt apply to Xbox one ( my console ) so I leave and as i exit the castle i figure i might as well try to go in once more . and low and behold there she is with all the Armour and weapons I gave her . thanks for the help !

  • Zahir Martinez

    I cant talk to serana every time I talk to her I get no dialogue plz help I play on ps3

  • LeDectur

    Its funny how I had a completely opposite problem with her.

  • Ty Scott

    Just subscribe aswell

  • Adam Lavota

    When I told her to leave I got so sad cause I could not tell her to come back after doing this I'm so happy she's back. Thanks!!

  • Darwin Xavior

    FAILED! Did not work. Serana is stuck out on the frozen lake in the forgotten vale and will not move. 24 hours, 48 hours she is locked up and still at that location when I return.

  • Tyson W

    Doesn't work for me on xbone wow really getting fed up with shit

  • christian guillen

  • _LanezGamez _

    I have waited a long time she didnt appear

  • JacobTheKoala

    I lost her, any ideas where she might be? I checked my houses and finished the dawn guard dlc I tried getting other followers but they are all like Looks like you've got someone already. I don't have a follower with me although I don't think she's visible and I hate it please help me. 😣

  • Ty Scott

    Why no upload any more skyrim

  • _LanezGamez _

    Will it still work if you side with the vamps

  • Tapsalot

    Thank you! I am on PS3 so all the other things that say "open your console" won't work and I was really hoping this wouldn't mess up my first play through.
